The history:

My name is Morrissey and I am the former lead singer of The Smiths. I formed the group in 1984 with Johnny Marr and later Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke joined us.

On our backs we have experienced 6 albums and countless singles intensely and lately we have had internal problems that, together with the distance between us, the gossip musical and sensationalist press and our little ability to solve internal problems, put an end to this stage in our lives. In this year 1987 the group dissolves and each one must follow their own path, with no intention of ever playing together again.

With The Smiths the bar has been set high and now, having to focus on my solo career, I will have to work hard to live up to it and not disappoint anyone. I have to move and the first thing will be to talk to Gail Colson, my new manager. We are about to start recording my first solo album and we need to catch up.
